It's that time again, when we get to take a step back and 'take stock' of our lives. For the month of September, I shared My First Year of Blogging and it proved to be a popular post, thanks guys, couldn't have survived my first year without you! I love Taking Stock each month - Pip from Meet Me At Mikes is the mastermind behind it all, so be sure to head over to her blog and share the blog love.
Here's what has been happening in our world...
Making: a Colour Sorting Box for Master M
Cooking: Lamb Ragout in the slow cooker
Drinking: a glass of Coca Cola
Reading: (re-reading) Building a Framework by Just a Girl and her blog...continuing to grow my blog.
Wanting: an iPhone for my birthday :)
Looking: forward to our first Christmas in our new home!
Playing: with Paint, Clay & Ball-Pit Balls
Deciding: what to have for dinner each night (aka Meal Planning) saves so much time! Do you meal plan?
Wishing: B's asthma will just go away!
Enjoying: the stunning Spring weather
Waiting: for the butterflies to come check out Miss B's Butterfly Garden
Liking: this post by fellow Kiwi Mummy Blogger, Emily Writes
Wondering: what I'm going to wear to my partner's work do, which also happens to be on my birthday. Think it's time to go shopping for a new outfit
The start of Miss B's Butterfly Garden - under our Play Room window
Loving: how organised my home is. Have you seen my Organising My Home series?
Considering: changing my hair style for Summer 2015/2016...the question is...Will I do it?
Buying: Christmas presents. I use the "Something I Want, Something I Need, Something to Read and Something to Wear" system - works a treat. See my Wish List Cards for more details. Do you do this?
Watching: the All Blacks beat Australia in the Final of the Rugby World Cup 2015 last weekend. So proud to be a Kiwi
Hoping: to start a newsletter for Teacher by trade, Mother by nature soon...Watch this Space
Marvelling: at this gorgeous Transport Inspired Bedroom, created by Always Made With Love
Needing: this year to slow down...how can we be in November already?
Questioning: what to plant in our gardens?
Smelling: dinner in the slow cooker...Lamb Ragout smells so good!
Wearing: my new Havaianas - I bought two for the price of one - Love me a bargain.
Noticing: the new changes to Facebook...it's going to take a while getting used to...have you noticed the changes? What do you think?
Thinking: of taking part in the #NZSecret Santa again this year - 5 days to go till we can sign up....Last year was so much fun!
Admiring: all the pretty Christmas decorations...we are going for a new colour scheme this year
Sorting: through all the boxes in my Office and finally started to set up my desk. LOVE.
Getting: organised for Christmas thanks to The Organised Housewife. Are you following along?

Coveting: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo
Disliking: people who hate on bloggers - not cool, not cool at all - we have feelings too.
Giggling: at my son when he hears his favourite songs...priceless
Feeling: tired...Master M has been teething a lot this past month, so I have been up quite a lot through the night
Snacking: on popcorn
Helping: my blogging friend re-design her blog. Love sharing my knowledge with others...must be the teacher in me
Hearing: Miss B's nasty 'asthma' cough...she's had a rough few months with back to back asthma attacks.
